I am a Blue Badge guide for Central Southern England covering Hampshire, West Sussex (including Arundel Castle) , Wiltshire, Dorset, the Jurassic Coast, Isle of Wight, Oxford, Blenheim Palace and I am an accredited Windsor Castle guide. I live within the South Downs National Park; an outstandingly beautiful area of countryside. I have a Diploma from the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (1998) and undertook a viticulture and winemaking course at Plumpton College in Sussex, so the increasingly successful vineyards of my local area are of great interest.

A super way to visit the area is by sea and I can offer guided trips in the Solent on a skippered luxury motor yacht. We visit ports like Cowes (for Osborne House), Lymington (for the New Forest), Southampton and Portsmouth (for its Historic Dockyard), as well as unspoilt little harbours and inlets like Newtown Creek and the Beaulieu River.

I enjoy showing off my home region to visitors and locals alike. We have such a wonderful array of historic and natural treasures to see and experience and I love helping people explore those hidden gems to take away some fantastic memories.
